Did Cornwall City Councilor Brock Frost Commit Fraud by Selling the River Kings? by Jamie Gilcig – Dec 3, 2014

brock & darren fbCORNWALL Ontario – New Cornwall City Councilor Brock Frost has taken his facebook page down and appears to be AWOL as allegedly more team cheques have bounced.  Sources have told CFN that he cleaned out team accounts leaving Darren Madden swinging in the wind.

Madden who allegedly is the new owner although the LNAH made clear that he isn’t unless he’s approved which isn’t likely,  actually hung up the phone when CFN called for info.  He later sent an email stating that his lawyer has muzzled him.  Emails to his lawyer requesting confirmation that she has gone on retainer with him were not responded to.

According to inside sources more team cheques are alleged to have bounced including ones for Delaney which supplies bus service for the team.  One player said he hadn’t been paid in three weeks.

The buzz is that Mr. Frost gave Mr. Madden a mortgage to give Mr. Madden the cash to buy the team even though Mr. Madden can’t really own the team unless the league approves, and that won’t be until later this week if at all.    Mr. Frost may be in violation of his contract for the league by signing papers with Mr. Madden as per the team’s previous press release.   (Can you see any legal rep telling their client it’s alright to tender monies before such a transaction is approved by the league?)

The LNAH is also staying closed mouthed on this situation.  For fans the biggest question is whether there will be a game this weekend or not?  It was also reported that the league has frozen the team from making further trades or roster moves.

For season ticket holders the biggest question is will Mr. Frost honor their tickets as he promised and refund any monies owed for games not played if the team folds?

The one glimmer of light are the rumours that there is a local group trying to cobble together a syndicate to finish the season; but with losses estimated at between $100K-150K that’s a big bite for any group or individual to swallow.  It would be interesting if such a group came together if the City would step up and give the team some free ice as the deal former Mayor Bob Kilger bestowed on the Cornwall Colts has hindered the survival of the River Kings in spite of fan support.

The irony of the situation is that Mr. Frost blamed previous ownership’s failings for the reason why the team struggled while under his guidance the team appears to be red lining.  It’s becoming more and more apparent that he simply focused on the River Queens and using the fan base to get elected.    Mr. Frost did not respond to a query from CFN.  He was in attendance at Council Orientation meetings that took place at City Hall.

What do you think River King fans?  Will the team finish the season?  Will they play this weekend?  You can post your comment below.

The River Kings soap opera continues AGAIN!!! How any of these things would be allowed, if proven correct, is beyond me. I said it from the get-go that Brock Frost was using the River Kings to leverage his political career. If these allegations turn out to be true how can anyone that has real estate dealings with Brock Frost trust him? For that matter how can the taxpayers of Cornwall trust him if these allegations turn out to be true?

Here are a few facts which I know to be true, Mr Frost sold the team to a Mr Madden on Nov 20th, done at lawyers and all shares in the team transferred. Mr Frost took out a lien of $40,ooo on Mr Maddens property and the deposited that money to the team account. League approval is a rubber stamp and does not supercede business and banking law. It would seem that Mr Madden has sunk the team in 10 days of ownership.Mr Frost has proof of all these transactions as well. The investigation should be focused on, what transpired… Read more »

Something sure stinks to high heaven and my inner self is wondering if that is why Frosty couldn’t face the people and kept calling paramedics. Check out the beedy little eyes on both Frosty and the midget. Both of them are beedy eyes and shifty. The only thing about Frosty is that he is educated and the problem with a lot of educated people is that they get themselves in big trouble and think that they are above the law. I saw something about a doctor today in one of Ottawa’s newspapers in trouble and he too thinks himself above… Read more »

Jim ,thanks for adding some substantial commentary to this discussion. It is a pleasant change from the sensational, wild-eyed speculation from CFN’s top 2 anonymous commenters and resident experts on…. just about everything and anything.

Why can’t anything be simple in Cornwall. The River Kings have been a soap opera since day one of their existence.

Yes, what happened after the team was sold? Did Brock Frost take a lien out on Darren Madden ‘t property, deposit that money in the RK’s accounts then take it all out? The saga continues.

Well here is one of the top two of the anonymous who supposedly knows it all. LOL LOL. ROLF! Frosty does have that little wagon at the back of the Civic Complex to drag the midget in using a bicycle. We just need to dress Frosty up as a clown and the midget as well and maybe he can hold out a hat to get chump change from people to try and pay his debts. Forget Frosty and his promise to forego his salary as a councellor to charity since he will need that as well to survive.

Who owns the River Kings? Brock Frost?? Darren Madden?? Is Mitch Gagne in the picture. I’d say from what I’ve been reading lately that Darren Madden owns the team. Apparently all the lawyer stuff has been completed, etc. If they are just waiting for league approval that should be just a formality. But if Madden wants to walk away, but all the paperwork has been done doesn’t that mean he owns the team? Brock Frost says he is unwilling to step back into the ownership role. It’ll be interesting to see if the team plays its games this weekend. Or… Read more »

Leslie must be saying that Frosty is driving him nuts the same way that Jules drives Jamie nuts. LOL LOL. Jamie might say Jules left this coo coos nest and flew into another and I Jamie flew into this coo coos nest and don’t know where to turn. LOL LOL. ROLF! Like I said Hugger it is only changing the bird cage liner. Cornwall hasn’t changed nor will it ever. I am having more fun than a barrel full of monkeys watching this circus happening.

To me Brock Frost’s involvement with the River Kings and being a city councilor are two different things. The two are not related.

jules

Hugger it isn’t that the two are related that Frosty bought the team and now chickening out of the deal but it has to do with lying and how will he fair out as a councellor if he cannot tell the truth. This is the concern that people have towards Frosty. If you are not honest and open with the public the way this mayor and council are supposed to be then the people voted in a liar and I know that Leslie will not be impressed with any of this going on. Leslie is a good and fair man… Read more »
